Video: Eric Clapton and Robbie Robertson – I Shall Be Released

We weren’t planning on posting anything for a while as we’re still in shock over the tragic events that took place in Boston this afternoon. That said, music heals and songs like I Shall Be Released have gotten us through terrible times. So we wanted to share a performance from Saturday night.

On Saturday night Robbie Robertson made a rare appearance on stage as part of Eric Clapton’s final set of the Crossroads Guitar Festival at Madison Square Garden. As rare as performances by Robbie Robertson are, it’s even more unusual to hear him play a song by The Band. I Shall Be Released was written by Bob Dylan, but was used by The Band as a track on the group’s debut album – Music From Big Pink. After dedicating the song to some dear old friends, Robbie handled vocals on I Shall Be Released as he performed with Eric Clapton and his band at MSG on Saturday.

We urge our readers to donate money to the American Red Cross.
